Elizabeth's own gratitude practice started almost 10 years ago. On September 10, 2013 a dear friend emailed a small group of women with an invitation to participate in a daily practice: we would send the group an e-mail with three things we were grateful for each day.
It started off simple but over the months and years we've shared amazing joys and heartbreaking losses. Love of avocados and gratitude for warm homes, loving families, and food on the table. Some days the gratitudes flow freely, while others it is truly an exercise.
I have to say it is one of the most important parts of my life - taking time to acknowledge all of the good even on the tough days.
